Abstract

The effects of cytoreductive nephrectomy (CRN) on prognosis of patients with metastatic renal cell cancer (RCC) using antiangiogenic targeted agents were evaluated. The median overall survival was significantly higher in the group that received CRN (P = .034). We speculate that CRN is still an important part of treatment modalities in patients with metastatic RCC in modern era targeted therapy, which is currently the best systemic therapy.
